Nasi Goreng Pattaya (Pattaya Fried Rice)

What is the different between the normal fried rice and the Pattaya fried rice? Well, Pattaya Fired Rice or Nasi Goreng Pattaya in Malay, is made out of fried rice placed inside an omelet that is shaped like a pouch. Break open the omelet pouch and you will have the fried rice. This is a very common dish in Malaysia, and is usually available in Malay stalls and restaurants.

Ingredients :

2 cups of cooked rice (prefer cold overnight rice)
1/2 cup of green peas
1 piece of chicken breast - cut small
1 carrots - cubes
1/2 cup of red or yellow peppers - cut small
2 small chillies - finely chopped
2 shallots - finely slice
2 cloves garlic - finely chopped
2 tbsp of tomato ketchup
2 tbsp of fish sauce
salt and pepper to taste
2 eggs - beaten (for omelet)

1)Heat up frying pan with a bit of oil. Add in shallots and garlic and stir fry until lightly brown and fragrant.
2) Add in chicken, carrot, pea, peppers and chillies and stir fry for 2 minutes. Make sure the vegetables is soft and the meat is cooked.
3) At this point add in the rice. Continue to stir fry until all ingredients are thoroughly mix. Add in ketchup, fish sauce, salt and pepper to taste to taste.
4) Fry for another 2 minutes and check seasoning. Dish out and set it a side.
5) In clean non-stick pan brush a bit of oil to it. Make the omelet and flip it over once the bottom side is lightly brown.
6) Put in a bowl of the fried rice at the center of the omelet and wrap up the 4 edges and flip it over a serving plate. Serve with some slice cucumber and tomato.

At first I thought your title meant that there would be stinky beans in the fried rice. kekeke

Looks really good. Kind of an upside down version of an omurice.

Penny said...

Thanks Gert, now I know how to wrap the rice correctly. I have never successfully have the rice wrap inside 'coz I always try "egg roll" style instead of using your great idea - a bowl and flip it out!!!!

ICook4Fun said...

Penny, I find it easier to wrap this way :)
